A searchable Database in Acrobat PDF format. Search 
by Page or topic in Adobe Reader from your web-browser. 
This information is derived from Kevin Mueller's person- 
al collection of printed magazines, catalogs, manuals and 
advertisements. This service is being provided as a means 
for identifying unknown boats by visual reference and 
description. 

This magazine catalog as originally formatted by Popular 
Boating, has each year's entries alphabetized twice. 
Therefore, if you don't see what you are looking for in the 
first part, there will be a second part titled; New Announce- 
ments. Please be sure to look there too. Find it easily from 
the bookmark or by searching the words "new announce- 
ments ". Please note that many boats are listed both under 
the manufacturing name and/or the Brand. 

You will need to print on legal size paper since the 
originals were a little too large for letter size. 

Other websites may not link directly to the archive. Please
